We were on the ship during the dreadful storm in the Philippines, and as a large proportion of the crew were Philippino it was very difficult for them. There is not high enough praise for all the staff on the ship, they were fabulous. The ... Read more

The ship is sharp and well laid out . . . it is actually the same ship as the Carnival Legend/Miracle twins with a bit classier decorations and fittings. Costa out shines everyone on embarkation proceedings . . . but is in the "not ready ... Read more

I am utterly disappointed with Costa. Food is just HORRIBLE. Pasta is inedible - mostly soggy with awful weird sauces. We were dining at the top tier Samsara restaurant and they serve us the same yucky nonsense that they served others in ... Read more

COSTA DELIZIOSA: BALTIC CRUISE ALL GREAT PORTS BUT . . . 1. Bad food badly cooked. Absence of fresh ingredients renders all dishes bland, often breaded and undercooked, covered with glop. Even pizza and minestrone not Italian on ... Read more

Having never been on a cruise before, the decision to take Costa Deliziosa was based more on its itinerary than on the ship itself. However, the travel agent told us the ship was new, so our expectations about the ship and the places we ... Read more

We have cruised on Costa twice, in 2010 on the Luminosa, in 2011 on the Costa Deliziosa. I am amazed at the low average score. he last cruise we boarded the ship in Amsterdam. Reasonably fast boarding procedure but it will be faster if you ... Read more

We joined the cruise at Amsterdam, having made our own way there and spending a couple of days sight seeing before we embarked. Embarkation was slow and a bit haphazard, but we eventually boarded around 2.30, having arrived at 1.30. Lunch ... Read more

We had done the same itinerary in Feb 2010 on RCI Brilliance,and wanted some winter sun with a shortish flight so booked ourselves a reasonable cost package on the Deliziosa. Having first read the reviews we were a little apprehensive but ... Read more

The ship was absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and the destinations laid out for passengers was first class, most of the time. The meals and the service in the dining room was excellent. The waiters very helpful and courteous. ... Read more

It was very great. The ship was new and often cleaned and the condition of the ship was well! The itinerary was okay - we visited Dubai, Muscat, Fujairah, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. Very interesting. The food was also good - okay, the ... Read more

First let me say Savona is not an easy city to reach from the airport so if you can book a shuttle do so. Costa does not allow you to use theirs unless they book your flight. Weird customer service if you ask me but I am an American. We ... Read more

After reading the reviews on the Costa Deliziosa, we were worried that we wouldn't like it, but having already tried Royal Caribbean, Princess and Island Cruises I can honestly say Costa were far better than our previous cruises. The ship ... Read more
